Let's Play Catch-Up

What's been going on:

  • I did a giveaway on a popular blog (and fun read...check out The Girl Creative!) which caused orders to pour in. 61 orders, to be exact...all of which are now shipped. Fun! And thank you, US Postal Service, for offering free pick up at my door.

  • The flu has left me...thankfully. Forever, I hope. Tamiflu rocks. And no, I did not get a flu shot because I am one of the freaks that gets ill from the vaccine, though this strain (I was told) is hitting people who have did have the shot.

  • I am in the middle of crossing guard evaluations and am developing a thicker skin.

  • My passport arrived. Not that I was worried. Ok, maybe a little. I always seem to cut things close. Oh, and we got our airline tickets...let's just pray that 2 hours is enough time to land at Gatwick, transfer to Heathrow, and make our flight home. I am thinking positive, but it is gonna be tight.

  • I may have nothing to worry about. British Airways is threatening to strike.

  • I made a green veggie hummus. It was nasty, but looked pretty in the bowl:
  • Alex keeps getting bloody noses and it has me worried. Just sharing.

  • Speaking of Alex, my rather tall son has a 3.4 GPA. THREE POINT FOUR!!! Basketball, PE and Study Hall help a little, but the motivation of driving a totally cool pick-up has helped more.

  • Brian not only made the city honor orchestra, but he was accepted into Pacific Symphony's summer camp. They only take 150 kids and they spend a week sleeping in dorms and studying with big wigs.

  • In 10 years, all my children will be thru with college. Random, but an important thing to know for sanity purposes.

  • Matthew came to visit. Drum corps tour is just a few short months away and he mentioned that last summer he came home with pierced ears and this summer might be something a different. Lord, help me.

  • I miss that guy that I like so much. He is working a TON. I sent him a text message yesterday and all it said was our address. Just in case he forgot where he lives.

  • We have been eating incredibly strange throw together meals lately and I cannot seem to remember when the last time we all sat down, at the same time, to supper together. I don't like that, but it will get better.

  • This Lent season has been incredibly spiritually moving for me. More so than ever before and I am so thankful for some things that God is helping me to see. Daily, gentle reminders of grace.

  • I am still waiting for LG to get back to me on my dryer. The dryer I paid a million dollars for less than 3 years ago. I am still hopeful that they will do the right thing.

  • Our fig tree is blooming. I have to admit, it was worrisome. It spent the winter looking like a tall stick in the mud...for reals.

  • My garden is in. 19 tomato plants, 2 zukes, 4 cukes, 8 peppers, and an eggplant. The rest will go in after Easter...carrots, melon, radishes and onions. The best part is that I installed a 'wife', otherwise know as a self watering system.

  • Spring Break is a mere week away. I think I can, I think I can, I think I can.

  • I have had horrible insomnia lately. Anyone want to play Dr Mario at 2am, pacific time?


  1. Hey Shell, this is Judy. No can do on the Mario, LOL I am really busy at that time watching the backs of my eyelids! Oh and I am so jealous of your garden. I WANT ONE!

  2. Ummm Emily is getting bloody noses also. Parallel lives....
